The Doctors: Rocco DiSpirito Healthier Food Swaps
Chef Rocco DiSpirito, celebrity chef and author, joined The Doctors to share a few of his favorite food tricks for burning fat to help you lose weight, while still enjoying delicious food. He first pointed out that protein powder may be one of the most useful tools in your kitchen, but it’s good for a lot more than shakes and smoothies! Rocco explained that you can actually use protein powder in place of flour in baked goods like pancakes, for a healthier, protein-packed breakfast. Traditional pancakes contain 77 grams of carbs whereas his protein pancakes have just 5 grams of carbs and 15 grams of protein!
But what if you really want to sink your teeth into a juicy burger? Because so many people are turning to a more plant-based diet, Rocco wanted to share a trick for helping your homemade veggie burgers stick together. He actually swapped beef for chickpeas, mushrooms, and egg white powder, which he seasoned with curry powder. Rocco was more than happy to sink his teeth into his delicious, juicy veggie burger, which was just 122 calories and 2 grams of fat!
While you may have heard about using cauliflower in place of rice, have you ever tried bean sprouts? Rocco likes to chop up sprouts and use them in place of rice in a stir fry, and replaced traditional soy sauce with coconut aminos, which makes for an entire bowl that’s under 100 calories!
The Doctors: Beauty Treatment For Fuller Lips
On a different note, The Doctors wanted to find out more about a new beauty treatment available to those wanting that perfect pout. Nurse Jamie performed the treatment on a woman desperate for fuller lips and The Doctors were incredibly impressed with how natural the results looked. Nurse Jamie explained that she basically uses organic dyes to add pigment and fill in the border of the lips, similar to a tattoo, while fillers plump the lips to add volume.
The Doctors: Quicker Aging For Presidents
Arguably the most stressful job on the planet is being President of the United States. Experts claim that the President gets two years older for each year they’re in office. A specialized age progression company took photos of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to see what they could potentially look like after eight years. The Doctors then had a little fun by looking at pictures of themselves, pointing out how well Dr Stork seems to be aging!
They then revealed the word of the day: luscious. You can use the word luscious on The Doctors’ website to enter for a chance to win a gift card to Niucoco, a beauty company offering vegan hair products.
The Doctors: Stand Up To Cancer Event
For The Doctors’ News in 2:00, it was reported that Tom Hanks and his wife, cancer survivor Rita Wilson, were just two of the big stars at 2016’s Stand Up to Cancer event.
